Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman calls for road changes

Chris Boardman from British Cycling wants to get more British people on their bikes, and says it should be seen as a "completely normal thing to do".

The Olympic cycling gold medallist says the health and wealth of the nation could be improved if people felt cycling was safe, with changes made to roads as part of a "bold vision from government".

The all-party Parliamentary Group on Cycling has been praised for raising the profile of cycling, and the government has pledged £107m for cycling infrastructure.
